Meet The Aussie That Khloe Kardashian Picked To Front Her New Denim Campaign
When Ramza Martin found out that she'd been selected to model in the new campaign for Good American -- Khloe Kardashian's denim brand -- she couldn't stop screaming.
At the time, however, the Sydney-based triple-threat -- lawyer/haircare brand founder/model -- couldn't scream too loudly as she was under firm instructions to keep her big news under wraps.
"I was bursting with excitement for days," she told 10 daily.
To be fair, it was pretty big news. Martin had been chosen by Kardashian as one of just 10 women to appear in Good American's summer '19 campaign.
Martin, an Australian of Lebanese heritage, along with some 60,000 others from around the globe, had responded to an open casting call -- now she's officially a member of the brand's 'Good Squad.'
It was so surreal -- I remember standing in the kitchen making dinner and looking over at my mum and saying, 'Does it make sense that we're going to LA?'
And off to LA they went for a whirlwind of fittings and an "amazing" shoot at a Bel Air mansion, as you do.
Martin, 27, posed up a storm in "a couple of denim outfits" as well as some of the brand's activewear -- all of which we'll see as the campaign is rolled out in the coming weeks.
As for Kardashian herself, Martin only had wonderful things to tell 10 daily.
I got to meet the whole crew -- Khloe and [Good American co-founder] Emma Grede. Khloe was really great, she has great energy and both are natural leaders.
Kardashian and Grede launched their label in 2016 with the simple aim of making jeans that fit women of all sizes, shapes and backgrounds. They've since expanded into clothing and activewear -- all in US size 00 to 24.
For Martin, who has Arab-Australian heritage, it's exciting and empowering to be involved with a global, and inclusive brand like Good American.
"It's important to see diversity represented -- in Australia we are a multicultural society but growing up I never saw anyone like me as a reference point and that's why I'm a part of this campaign," she said.
It's also why in 2017 she and a friend founded their haircare line, Saint Curl, for Aussies with curly and natural hair.
"My co-founder is of Nigerian descent and we have different hair but the same problem -- we're not represented in the beauty industry. That's why we started Saint Curl in response to that gap in the market," she said.
We can't wait to see what Martin does next.
